Insurance companies have been around hundreds of years. In the last ten years, they have begun developing more innovative approaches to their product designs—a good example being annuities. The best annuities can provide retirement income similar to a pension, and principal guarantees* based on the claims-paying ability of the insurance carrier providing the annuity. They can offer growth tied to the stock market, or based on stock market performance.

Choosing the right type of annuity can help create income that will be there no matter how long you live. And the best annuities can provide other advantages, too–like a death benefit, spousal protection, long-term care or disability protection, either as part of the annuity itself, or structured as riders.

Fixed index annuities provide the guarantees of fixed annuities, combined with the opportunity to earn interest based on changes in an external market index. But because you’re not actually participating in the market, the money in your annuity (your “principal”) is not at risk.

The insurance industry’s version of a savings account. It helps
you earn a modest rate of interest safely and allows you to
postpone the payment of income taxes on your earnings for as
long as you want.
As a tax-deferred retirement strategy, variable annuities allow
you to choose from a selection of investments which then pay
you variable income based on the success of those investments.
*Principal guarantees are backed by the claims-paying financial strength of the insurance company underwriting the policy, and usually have a surrender period which must be met.
